Amazon Web Services announced a new configuration for Amazon Aurora that offers improved price performance and predictable pricing for customers with input/output (I/O)-intensive applications.
The new Aurora configuration allows customers to pay only for their database instances and storage consumption with no charges for I/O operations.
This allows customers to confidently predict costs for their most I/O-intensive workloads, regardless of I/O variability, helping to accelerate their decision to migrate more of their database workloads to AWS.
Aurora is a fully managed MySQL- and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database. AWS said Aurora is in use by hundreds of thousands of customers, including Airbnb, Atlassian, and Samsung, for I/O-intensive applications like payment processing systems, ecommerce, and financial applications.
The new Aurora configuration is now generally available.
